Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor

Used for monitoring the network and getting us advanced notice of outages and issues.
  • Monitor systems for uptime.
  • Monitor network connectivity and getting notices that the backup is in use.
  • Specific port monitoring for traffic analyses.
  • Dependencies are not easy to configure.
  • Make sure that only one salesperson is sending messages. I hate notices from multiple people about the same thing.
  • The graphical interface could use a facelift.
  • Useful for non-IT people to monitor the sites from our service center. Visually, (although not pretty in design) green is good and red is bad. Our call center can easily see that.
No comparison completed as of yet.
Less suited for a smaller business as it's an expensive tool. Better used by a larger-sized business where there are dedicated staff to monitor alerts.
